Here are the little drawings for the inside of the Pitfall 2 Game Manual. Imagine the excitement! This game has it all. Even...eels? I would love to one day visit a cave full of crowns and money sacks. It would be worth the falling stalactites. I mean it. Also, think of the doubloons.

This is a cover I recently did for a new release version of the computer game Pitfall 2.
It was really exciting to work on art for a game which I was already somewhat familiar with. Kind of retro looking with some extra texture cheats thrown in. The top 1/4 will be occupied with the Pitfall 2 title on the box.
I will be posting some Instruction manual character spot illustrations done for this title soon.

This is another "retro" video game cover I recently completed. I always love space themed stuff so this was pretty fun. I'm pretty curious to see how the game plays. looks pretty cute.

I have been really busy lately with some projects and wouldn't you know it, long time no post.
Here is one little painting that I have wanted to post but wasn't really satisfied with the photo. Oh well. This is obviously a quick painting of a Wildebeest that I wanted to maintain a "spontaneous" look. I especially like this painting because I just hated it in the beginning. I am a firm believer in the "magic" happening "in the moment" But I can't help but notice how much I like my second take, my third sketch, and my fourth revision better these days.
